Author Week 2018

7 November 2018 | School News

Weatherhead LRC is excited to host our annual ‘Author Week’ event from Monday 12th – Friday 16th November.  Five amazing authors will be joining us for a whole day each, taking lessons with various classes, as well as signing books and bookplates in the LRC at lunchtimes (all students welcome).

Books by each author are available to buy for £5 each from Miss Grainger in the LRC all through the week.  Books bought elsewhere can also be brought in to be signed – just remember to bring them to the LRC at lunchtime on the right day!

Previews of the books can be viewed/downloaded by students in our special ‘Author Week’ Google Classroom – simply log into your Weatherhead Google Classroom account, click the ‘+’ symbol to join a classroom, and type in this code: gxn7czh (see Miss Grainger in the LRC if you need any help).  Printed copies are also available to read in the LRC.

Joining us each day are:

Monday 12th November: Andy Seed – fun and wacky non-fiction books crammed full of weird and wonderful facts!
Tuesday 13th November: Bali Rai – challenging and often gritty fiction exploring teenagers’ lives in modern multicultural Britain!
Wednesday 14th November: Tom McLaughlin – hilarious books with great pictures (Tom is also an illustrator) that will make you laugh out loud!
Thursday 15th November: Lauren James – tense and unusual romances with fantastic strong female characters!
Friday 16th November: Kim Curran – hugely popular genre-blending action, with a demon-slaying boy band!
